Implication of functional and anatomical preoperative characteristics in the outcomes of epiretinal membrane (ERM) surgery
Acta Ophthalmologica, 08/20/2012
Navarro JC et al. – A functional recuperation occurs (based on BCVA) in more of 80% of the patients, after ERM surgery. Most of the eyes show persistent macular thickening, but this does not seem to have influence on the final BCVA. The best determinant of postoperative functional recuperation is, in this experience, the preoperative BCVA, and not the macular thickness.
